The rain we've gotten and lower temperatures have started a growth spurt in my small garden. Here's some wonderful jalapenos, basil, and a banana pepper flower with a little friend. ▪ ▪

The garden is still providing so much! We’ve been having many dinners, with the majority coming from our own stuff! 🙏🏼😍 I’ve still been canning like crazy! We bought a specialty pickling spice and realized we don’t like it after canning about 15 jars of pickles with. 😏 We’re learning, we’re growing. We can’t wait till next year!

When I was a little girl, I was out visiting my family's farm out in Quebec. I went outside to find my aunt Mary, sitting in her garden weeding and whatnot. Her garden was big and full. We always had a big garden at our house but not like this one. She showed me her potatoe plants and dug some up. These red jewels beneath the earth just waiting to be dug up. I was amazed! It had never occurred to me before that potatoes could grow in your own garden. So here I was simply amazed that real live potatoes were growing right before me; Not just found in a 10lb paper bag from the supermarket. So here we are 30 odd years later and we have our own potatoes in our very own garden. It's such a great feeling to grow your own garden. Watching the stages as they come throughout the summer and then picking them fresh and ripe to cook and eat is such a gift! Potatoes fresh from the garden... oh my word!! 98/365 #growgardengrow#sweetharvest#sasklife#cbcsklens#cantgetanyfresher#summerisclosetoanend#veggiegardens
Pineapple black bean tomato salsa! I'm testing a few new 'summer bounty' recipes this week and this is one. The ingredients are: - diced cherry tomatoes 🍅 - black beans - fresh pineapple 🍍 - red pepper 🌶 - onion - chopped cilantro - juice from a lime - a bit of sea salt
Mix all together and store in the fridge! And with the leftover pineapple peel, try making Pineapple Tepache, a home brewed fermented drink. I have some brewing in the microwave as we speak (that's so the fruit flies can't get at it - ingenious if I do say so myself). There's so much available right now for fruits and vegetables. I love it. I might not like the humidity of summer in southwestern Ontario but show me those colourful gardens!! #tomatosalsa#pineapplesalsa#summerbounty#newrecipetuesday#blackbeans#cilantro#growgardengrow
